(This task will appeal to children who are reluctant in pencil and crayon activities and will improve their finger strength and pencil hold).
Children prepare and eat their own snack on Taste-it Tuesday.
By doing this, they develop their finger strength and physical control over utensils. They also develop their independence and gain confidence in their ability.
Young children love to help in the kitchen. There are lots of simple jobs you could ask your child to help with. They could mix/stir, place food on a baking tray, wash potatoes, put pasta in a bowl before you add it to the pan or chop soft ingredients such as banana or mushroom.

Today we will explore jungle animals more. They will be hidden in shaving foam and we can describe them when we find them. You may prefer to use soapy water if you have no shaving foam. Your child can enjoy finding the animals and you can describe them. What colour? What size? What shape?
We're going to see how the animals move on Funky Friday!
